For your listening and viewing pleasure is this magnificent pair of 1959 Zildjian K Istanbul hand hammered Turkish Intermediate Stamp hi-hats in great condition. They are perfect medium-light weights for jazz, funk, fusion, latin, and anything else we've thrown at it. The bottom hat still retains its signature, as well as a "14" medium" black ink stamp. No cracks, no bends, no warping, no nicks. The top hat's hole looks great, the bottom hat's hole is slightly out of round. These beauties have acquired a well earned patina over the years which has subtly quelled overtones into a luscious sonic perfection. Like many of these old hand made Ks, they did not always match hats with exact same sizes, which in affect prevents air-lock when going for a clean chick. The top hat measures at 13&15/16" & the bottom hat measures 13&13/16". Not all K's were created equal, and these are a pair of the good ones. They are an extremely musical matched pair that sound great with either hat on top. Ready for the finest of studios, or stages.
